As hackers figured how to boot the Dreamcast from regular CDs without any hardware modding, it became, by all practical means, the most open console ever. That is, until ''intentionally'' open consoles came out, such as the Linux-based [[Caanoo]] and many [[Android]]-based portables, but I digress. Retaining a devoted fanbase even after it was commercially discontinued, it was the platform of choice for many independent developers. Thus it received several original titles, as well as ports and emulators.

As many Dreamcast games were much smaller than a CD's capacity, pirates have figured out how to make multi-game compilations. Where to get them? Hint, hint: RetroZone.co, Segahub, CoolROM, DopeRoms, Rom Hustler.
